I hope that you have had a fun and peaceful Christmas! We had a good one with all the attendant rush and overindulgence. Luckily, we also had some blustery winter weather over Boxing Day and today to give us a good excuse for staying home and relaxing (except for a little sledding and playing in the snow).
This gave me plenty of time to occupy and I decided to do a little, stress free painting. Having no winter source material at hand (it was plain old white looking out the window) I went back into my photo archives and picked something that would provide a simple, spare composition. The result is above. It only took about 4-5 hours all said and done. What an excellent way to while away the snowy hours!
If there is anyone out there that would like it, send me an email at email@example.com and I would be happy to post it to you for free. (Update: painting has a new home – in Colombia!!)
Best wishes to you all, and a very happy New Year!
